Can Baby Tui Na Chinese Massage be used for treating illness?

Ilnesses of all kinds are the result of some disturbance to the normal flow of Qi. Tui Na can restore this flow to treat most of the common health problems of young children:

Baby Tui Na Chinese Massage or Paediatric Tui Na is a branch of traditional Chinese Medicine and was developed from Tui Na for adults over a thousand years ago.

It has been extensively practised in China for at least 700 years and experience has revealed unique ways and means of affecting the energy flow in the bodies of young children.

Babies have meridian systems that are not fully developed, yet every aspect of a baby's growth and development depends on Qi flow and its correct balance.

Tui Na Chinese massage for infants uses a whole system of points and pathways that often do not correspond with any of the adult ones. Tui Na Chinese massage for babies is powerful medicine and when performed correctly, its effects are profound.

It is during the first five years of a child's life that the most important physical, neurological and behavioural developments take place. This is the time when disturbances to the flow and diffusion of vital Qi and its balance between the organs can have the most seriously harmful and lasting effects. These include retarded brain development, weakened immune response and slow development of the musculo-skeletal system.
